From the moment Metropolis Arena staffers usher the day’s first group of masked sharpshooters into the obstacle-laden battle zone, the airsoft outpost remains abuzz with fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled crossfire until the last BB is shot. The 14,000-square-foot playing field camouflages up to 100 players at a time with its olive and khaki hues, and its indoor facility enables year-round play unhindered by inclement weather or traitorous clouds. In the onsite shop, knowledgeable staff members outfit players with rental gear and help shooters in the market for new equipment select a suitable instrument for their next BB-firing mission.

Among the largest and most advanced paintball facilities in the Southeast, Shane’s Hot Shots Paintball & AirSoft is a tacticians dream. The expansive land resembles a battleground: shells of aircraft, abandoned forts, and stacks of tires litter the field. Paintball players and airsoft marksmen duke it out on their large fields during open-play matches, weaving between the obstacles and hiding in trenches. The fields are open on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Click here to see the park’s rules.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Ranked in Golfweek's Best Courses You Can Play in Indiana, the course at Prairie View Golf Club is situated on 206 acres of environmentally protected land along the White River with scenic prairieland and five lakes. The Robert Trent Jones, Jr. design features natural wetlands with a rushing stream that comes into play on four holes, forcing players to demonstrate deft control or gilled golf bags. On the front nine, the prairie setting invites harsh winds to blow across bentgrass fairways, often knocking shots off course. As players make the turn onto the back nine, they notice a marked difference in the environment, as open prairies give way to tall sycamore, oak, beech, and cottonwood trees lying just beyond the Kentucky bluegrass rough. Across the river lies Conner Prairie, a historical re-enactment village whose elegant, 1830s-era style was adopted for the design of the course's 15,000-square-foot clubhouse.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 7,073 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 74.5 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 138 from the back tees
  • Four sets of tees per hole
